Donald Trump isn't sorry that he called Mexican immigrants “rapists.” He is, however, sorry that you're offended, sorry that he's not sorry, and a cheerful assortment of other non-apologies.
In a recent address to the City Club of Chicago, Trump stated the following:
“I've been very strong on immigration. And we have to be. And I've taken a lot of heat. And it's unnecessary, very unfair heat. Because, first of all, I love the Mexican people. I have a great relationship with Mexico.”
Then he managed to further muddle an already pitiful defense by adding:
“How can I not love people that give me tens of millions of dollars for apartments? You have to love them.”
Trump has already announced his intention to sue Univision for "defamation," after the network said it would be canceling its coverage of the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants in response to Trump's derogatory comments.

Now he may be suing NBC as well, which also canceled coverage of the two pageants, and fired him from The Apprentice.
Trump has just issued the following statement/feeble threat:
